misinformation in this case. untruths he said being put out on social media and his concern that that is confusing some of the facts in this case. he also said he's not looking to release a timeline of what happened in the shooting until more investigation is done. stay with ktvu on this we'll be bringing you more details throughout the day online and in our 5:00 show later on today. a dispute between hospital administrators and nurses union is at the heart of a suspected strike by thousands of registered nurses. the walkoff will happen at nine hospitals. nurses and x-ray technicians represented by the california nurses association will start the one-day strike on chrimas eve. they are upset about staffing levels, health benefits, and sick days. time now is 8:52. secretary of state hillary clinton will not testify at a hearing this week about september's benghazi attack. what is keeping her from attending that important meeting. we are tracking more clouds once again this sunday morning.
